Domus Academy’s Fashion Cluster Presents Lectures by Top Designers
Domus Academy’s Fashion Cluster is presenting a series of lectures reserved for students in the Master in Fashion Design, Master in Fashion Styling & Visual Merchandising, and Master in Fashion Management.
Among the featured lecturers are renowned names in the fields of art, set design, and information technology.
On Tuesday, October 2, Domus Academy will host Felice Limosani, a creative multi-disciplinarian and new media artist who aims to break down the boundaries between fine art, design, technology, culture, experience, and pure enjoyment. His work ranges from art installations to staged immersive environments and experiential curatorial work. Limosani will talk about brand storytelling: the new way of communicating to engage consumers and convey the values of a company through stories, images, and videos that are emotionally involving.
On Monday, October 8, the featured lecturer will be Leila Fteita, costume designer and creator of the scenes for the ongoing opera Alibabà e i Quaranta Ladroni at Teatro alla Scala. Part of the Retail and Visual Merchandising workshop, the lecture will focus on the development of a set design, from concept to realization. Fteita will also guide students through a special tour of Teatro alla Scala’s set design, tailoring, sculpture, and carpentry departments, as well as the rehearsal stage and room holding over 60,000 stage costumes.
On Monday, October 17, our speaker will be Craig Crawford, an IT strategist who has worked for Burberry, Tory Burch, Liz Claiborne, Gap, and other top brands. Part of the Fashion Buying workshop, the lecture will focus on the convergence of experience design and technology. Crawford will share his experience, starting from the creation of Burberry’s digital strategy. He will discuss how retailing is in trouble today and how digital tools can help solve supply chain inventory problems.
